30 porches and 50 musical groups playing in 1 great neighborhood for your listening pleasure on Thursday June 8, 6-9 PM! (Psssst–that’s tonight!)
Check out the event map below so you can track your walking path through Kingfield.

What is PorchFest?
PorchFest is an evening of acoustical music held at multiple outdoor venues throughout Kingfield on a single evening. PorchFest is a chance for musicians to share their music with their neighbors and a chance for neighbors to walk the dog, stroll the baby, or pack a cool beverage and meander with their sweetie from home to home enjoying the talent of our amazing neighborhood!

On Thursday, April 27th, The Aliveness Project will again host their biggest fundraiser, Dining Out for Life, when more than 150 restaurants in the metro area donate a portion of their proceeds to Aliveness. It will take some help from the community: More than 200 volunteer Ambassadors will be needed throughout that single day! Ambassadors invite friends, family, and co-workers to dine out, and are placed in a local restaurant to welcome and thank diners, and encourage participation in our prize drawing and additional donations.
There is a simple one-and-a-half-hour training for Ambassadors, and no need to have volunteered at The Aliveness Project before. Find out more information at diningoutforlife.com or sign up to be a volunteer at aliveness.org/ambassador. Many restaurants in Kingfield are participating – see the full list at here!
If you have questions, contact Laura Henry, The Aliveness Project’s Volunteer Manager, at email@example.com or 612.822.7946 ext.221.
